Fifteenth Century Italian Ornament, Sydney Vacher, 1854 - 1935
This collection is inspired by the work of Sydney Vacher, an English architect of the late 19th century that created a book of patterns called ‘Fifteenth Century Italian Ornament’. The patterns within were inspired by the ‘brocades and stuffs found in pictures in the National Gallery, London’. Chiefly he chose patterns and details found within 15th-century Italian art and recreated these as repeat patterns for use with textiles, fabrics and print design. This particular repeat pattern is inspired by a detail on the dress of the Madonna in La Madonna della Rondine (The Madonna of the Swallow), painted in 1490 by Carlo Crivelli.

Carlo Crivelli, 1430 - 1495, was born in Venice and probably trained with Squarcione in Padua. He spent most of his life in the Marches (eastern central Italy), after periods in Venice and Zara. Crivelli was active as a painter by 1457 when he was condemned in Venice for adultery. He was very successful as a maker of altarpieces in the Marches. These are especially well represented in the Collection.
Crivelli was influenced by the Vivarini at an early stage. From Squarcione, or one of his pupils such as Giorgio Schiavone, Crivelli could learn simulated marble architecture; festoons of fruit; parchment cartellini and music-making putti. Venetian painting up to this point had been dominated by the Late Gothic style, such as that of Jacopo Bellini and his son Gentile.
Crivelli was a fine technical painter and his pictures are in a good state of preservation. He had a strong linear decorative sense and was a brilliant colourist. His work was particularly appreciated in the 19th century, as witnessed by the price paid for the Gallery's 'Madonna della Rondine'.
The altarpiece represents the Virgin and Child enthroned with Saint Jerome and Saint Sebastian, but it is named after the swallow ('rondine' in Italian) perched above, which may be intended as a symbol of the Resurrection. It comes from San Francesco in Matelica and bears the arms of the Ottoni family. It was commissioned in March 1490 by Ranuzio Ottoni, Lord of Matelica, and Giorgio di Giacomo, guardian of the local Franciscan convent. Crivelli signed himself 'Miles' (Latin: knight), a title he received in 1490.
The National Gallery in central London was founded in 1824 and houses over 2,300 paintings dating from the mid-13th century to 1900. Situated in Trafalgar Square, it is an iconic building that is famous the world over. Its collection belongs to the government on behalf of the British public and is among the most visited art museums in the world.
The National Gallery Collection contains over 2,300 works, with all major traditions of Western European painting represented from the artists of late medieval and Renaissance Italy to the French Impressionists.
Macclesfield was once the centre of the English silk weaving industry and the world's biggest producer of finished silk. The area has been printing silk for over 300 years and at one point had over seventy mills operating in the town. The town is close to a water supply that passes through limestone, and when used in washing and dyeing it gives silk a uniquely attractive lustre.
Our silk linings are printed at a mill that has been producing printed fabric on the same site for the past fifty years and the process uses water sourced from its own reservoir.
